Monroe knows

marilyn 4

a bombshell kind of pearl cross beauty
dissolved gaunt from gin
in menthol vapour,

midst waste of ‘hand down pants’
insipid, three ring pokus
circus ape assaults,

trap-door, charmer jesus’
rescue from chiffon virtues
of body’s tire-tread
service,

lone touch of plain
humanity to brush ash clear,
her iced, lunar surface.
